Soestdijk's career in NOTS consisted entirely of voyages between Atlantic ports of the United States and south American shipping centers, carrying coal manganese ore, and linseed. Between May 1918 and May 1919, she made three trips from Baltimore to Brazilian ports and she also engaged in coastwide traffic along the eastern seaboard, visiting New York N.Y.; Charleston, S.C., and Newport News, Va. On 1 June 1919, she sailed from Baltimore laden with food bound for Europe. She made Falmouth, England, on the 16th; then headed on to Goteborg, Sweden, where she unloaded her cargo. On 8 July, she departed Goteborg for Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Soestdijk decommissioned there on 14 July 1919 and was returned to her owner.
